DIY Washi Page Marker

We all have a collection of washi that we hoard because it’s far too pretty to use, so why not make a page marker out of it. This way, you will be able to preserve some of the washi and make a gorgeous page marker for your planner.

What you will need:

  • Washi Tape
  • White card preferably, as some washi is transparent, if not just use what you have.
  • Scissors or a paper trimmer
  • Pen or a pencil
  • Ruler
  • Hole Punch
  • Laminator (optional)

Step One – Page Marker

Take your card and measure 2 inches wide and 7.5 inches long (personal/medium size planner) 0r 2.5 inch wides 9 inches long (A5/Large planner). Trim this down to size.

Step Two – Wrap
Depending on the pattern of your washi tape, you will either need to wrap it around the card vertically or horizontally. I have done both.

Keep wrapping until all your card is covered, making sure to line up the patterns if you can. Once finished, round the corners to keep it neat.

Step 3 – Position

The easiest was to do this step is to place the page marker underneath an existing page in you planner, this way you can see how much you want to appear out of the top. .

Once you are happy, use the existing holes in your page as a guide and mark in the centre where you want to punch. Once punched, use your scissors to make slits where the holes are to allow the papermarker to snap in and out without opening your rings.

Step 4 – laminate (Optional)

You now laminate your page marker if you wish, this will keep it clean and enable you to use sticky notes etc on it without it getting marked. Punching your holes before laminating will make it easier to punch through the laminate.

Step 5 – Customise

Now you have your basic page marker, you can now embellish it, however you wish. I used word stickers from the simple stories, but you can use any decorative sticker, or write it on it yourself with a sharpie.

I hope you have taken some inspiration from this simple DIY. If you do make your own, please tag me on IG or Twitter. I would love to see your creations.
